Has anyone had bad experiences from here?

Want to make an order but just making sure first

https://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.19611 What do people think of this?

What are bulkrate prices?

Thx
Rob

I've ordered numerous things. Take a while to arrive, but always do. Had stuff delivered to both my home address (Blackburn) and Uni address (Newcastle), so you should be fine.

Bulk rate means simply buying in bulk. You save money if you do.

Ive ordered loads of stuff in the past without problems... until now!

Order placed on 2 December still hasnt been sent and no response as to when it will be so opened a Paypal complaint. I was then told they wouldnt send goods unless I cancelled my complaint.

Its now been raised as a dispute. I dont like blackmail!

I've had no problems with these either and would use them again.
#5
I've had deliveries take about a week, when they are in stock.
Other items (DS card), took a few weeks to arrive.
Overall, good service.

And of course free delivery.

Its an MP3 player that looks like an iTouch. There the similarity ends.

Personally I'd same my money. Stuff like this can be OK, but reading reviews for similar items, its likely you'd be disappointed.

Hopefully no one has asked about this item before or you will get the forum troll back with more patronising comments.

Not had any problems, used them a number of times, for small and large orders. Delivery can take a while sometimes, so patience is a useful virtue to have, but in my experience they always come up trumps in the end....

Saint, this is a forum. Here on forums, we people talk much like we would in real life, as if we were all sitting around a giant table. People ask questions in conversation. They ask questions on forums, too. Every time the question is asked, the answers it receives are better, more comprehensive.

What you're mistaking this site for is a database. A database being where you enter queries into a search engine, and it brings up data matching your keywords. It doesn't work the same way as a forum works. If you'd rather be on a database than a forum, it's funny, because we all wish you were somewhere else too.

I ordered dstt card which was a fake and faulty, have been trying to get my money back for nearly 3 months!! They told me money was in my account 3 weeks ago, last week can i wait for th emoney as the boss is a bit busy to do refunds, not they are saying it is too late for refund as over 2 months old! I have ordered from them before, very cheap but a lot of it doesn't work, needs new batteries, etc or picture shows lots of differents in a pack but they come through a majority of them all the same. Not good news if you need to reutrn stuff and get your money back, I certainly would not buy from them again or recommend them!

I bought a 10mW green laser from them, it was awesome, especially at Leeds Fest in a field in the countryside. I lost it though gutted. Naturally I did what any self respecting man would do and replaced it.....this time with a 30mW, which I'm currently waiting on.


I'd be careful where you go pointing that - if the police aircraft is around, put it away.

Had exactly the same problem, just used the order number in the confirmation email to view my invoice and clicked cancel, had the money back in my paypal account within a few days.

Never had any other problems with them though.

I've also had a couple of times when I've had a bit of a wait... but got the stuff in the end.

The Paypal dispute ive registered - they have until the 22 to Respond. To date they haven't. My order is now showing pending - but also marked as paused. All they had to do was repond to say "the goods are not in stock - we expect it in xx days". But instead they ignore. Silly really. Just wished they'd stop advertising goods they dont have.

What's it for?

(I know what they are - just cant think of any practical / legal use for them!

I wouldnt use them again, had to many problems with fake and faulty goods, sent items back at their request for refunds but they never refund, paypal are a waste of space, total out of pocket now stands at £45.00
I use [url]www.focalprice.com[/url] now excellent service, bought a faulty item emailed them to request a new one, they emailed me back within 24 hours with the returns address and the new item was dispatched next day, before they had received the faulty item back. top class, even refunded the return postage.


I`m thinking Dealextreme and Focalprice are the same Company, have a look at this page.

after reading comments on deal's site it seems the people who spend a little get the items changed and those who spend a lot dont.
Glad you got it sorted.
personally i still wont touch them .


Dont think that's quite true. I've spent loads - and still got stitched up. They had to respond to Paypal by today (and haven't) so wait and see what happens. They have admitted they haven't sent the goods, so I cant see Paypal not doing anything..... but who knows!
#26
Ive had no real issues with DX but Focal Price are a set of liars. They tell you things like oh yes we have a few left in the warehouse we will send it a.s.a.p and low and behold they don't. When I ask for a refund they have said on 3 occasions don't worry we package and send today you priority.
Been waiting nearly a month now!
